"The classroom environment here goes far beyond lectures and reviewing assigned texts. Classes provide a forum for discussion which really enhances what you're learning. For example, by actively communicating in my psychopathology class, I've gained a stronger foundation and am better equipped to work with clients.
This kind of learning environment provides me with greater confidence, as well as a deeper understanding of the material."
